The 6 Weirdest Wedding Superstitions & How They Came to Be

The lure of superstition finds many couples very curious and often laughing about ancient lore. There are numerous known superstitions surrounding weddings from many cultures, and while many seem purely wacky by today's standards, were once highly revered by their respective cultures. 

Rain on your wedding day = bad luck? 

Knives as wedding gifts? 

Marrying on Saturday = bad luck? 

See the 6 weirdest wedding superstitions and how they came to be via our collaboration with Jenn Sinrich for Wedding Wire. You're bound for a good laugh.

Needless to say this wacky wedding superstition isn’t keeping the modern bride and groom from saying “I do!” over this convenient weekend day. Photo by Elevate Photography.
